Desgined by Rémi Bouhaniche, a French design graduate, “Etirement” is a lamp that is dimmed by distorting its surface. It features a translucent membrane stretched over a steel frame which. All you need to do is pull the rod which you see in the center in order to adjust the level of intensity. The level of the light’s intensity can be raised or lowered according to the distortion of the fabric membrane. The designer of this object, Rémi Bouhaniche, calls the temporary, changing shape of the Etirement “a poetic time from a daily action.” Etirement will be on display at the Les Ecoles de Design 2009 show at VIA France in Paris from 7 July to 23 August.
